This page offers the astronomical community a summary of all available community observing opportunities.

The prospective observer can use this site in two ways, by roadmap, and by site listing.

The roadmap to planned observations allows the prospective observer to compare available facilities on the basis of the observing mode, telescope aperture class, and instrumentation performance. At the end of the roadmap all relevant information on time allocation, and proposal forms, are also provided.

The site listing offers substantially the same information, but organized by program. It includes the National Optical Astronomy Observatory (NOAO) , the Telescope System Instrumentation Program (TSIP), and the Program for Research and Education with Small Telescopes (PREST)
